To the Moon and Back
a film by Sara Kolster



Synopsis
Since the death of her sister Bo, Kess has lived in a house full of memories. When Kess goes to high school for the first time and makes new friends, she is confronted with the question of whether to tell about her sister's death or whether she wants to keep this to herself.

To the Moon and Back shows the impact of loss at a young age through the eyes of a younger sister whose life goes on. While Kess is being followed in the transition to a new phase in her life, for the first time she is given the opportunity to shape her own story, based on animations that reflect her memories and thoughts.
